Quote# 1730

[Replying to story about a <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/1/hi/sci/tech/4714135.stm" target="_blank">Japanese-developed 'female' android</a>.]

I agree...it "could" be the image of the beast. The pictures of the female android are startling. She looks very real, indeed.
Could an android be linked up to the internet and (this is a really really extreme thought) cause satellites to possibly fall out of orbit and into the earth's atmosphere where they would burn up and look like balls of fire? I mean don't satellites use jet propulsion to place themselves in certain positions? Could these be controlled by computers on earth? I think it could. And with an android able to think for itself at some point in the future might be able to crack impossible codes and barriers that would inhibit normal people from being able to do this.

I think it is a definite possibility. We can't rule out anything for sure when any interpretation could be right.

Ah, the paranoid ravings of a certifiable lunatic.

Krazy, indeed.

You'll be talking different when we're all slaves to our hyper-intelligent cyber toilet overlords.

No, but she can make you a really bitchin' tinfoil hat.

The BEAST is looking for Sarah Conner.

\"Could an android be linked up to the internet and (this is a really really extreme thought) cause satellites to possibly fall out of orbit and into the earth's atmosphere where they would burn up and look like balls of fire?\"

That's an absurd possibility to assume to start with, a major flaw in many sci-fi stories, partly because such controls surely are NOT hooked up to the whole freaking Internet, waiting to be hacked.

But even if it could, just because it LOOKS humanoid doesn't mean it has intelligence or motives as such, and certainly it would have no particular reason to want to wipe out the civilization that created it and would sustain it.

Man, some people create the most bizarre fantasies to worry about while blithely ignoring many of the very real problems that do exist in this world.

No, you've got it all wrong, Krazy! Japanese female androids don't make satellites fall down; they just drive around on scooters, take photos with fancy-looking cameras, and brew some kicking rad coffee.

Goodness, it seems that fundies are afraid of advances in technology and science.

Yes Kooky4Cocopuffs, a robot, can be hooked to the internets, and then you would be able to disable multi-billion dollar satellites. You kracked the kode, you krackhead.

Yeah, or we could bypass the whole issue of androids and make my computer hack satellite networks...

Not to mention I think those are all just sex toys. The Japanese ones are anyway.

This was a recurring theme in sci-fi stories for many years. The Matrix gave it a new twist and thereby a dignified dying breath.

Nowadays, not so much.

Sexy android haxxing satellites and using them to bombard the Earth? It's more likely than you think.

Wouldn't the android be the servant of skynet? I mean, if your going to do science fiction then you've got to use logic, the satellites would be the tool of the oppressive machine regime, as would the single android.

They'd use the satellites for controlling the missle silos and communications between their android factories and armies.

I would hope all computers, especially self determining ones would have the never endanger humans limits of Asminov built in.
